This tribute was added by Desmond Mahadeo on 29th January 2014

""LWT" was truly the first mentor I had, he inspired me to great heights, I remember as if it was yesterday, in 1988 when he employed me as his "Sales Representative" for ESSO Guyana. I had just graduated, and the role encompassed huge responsibilities to the commercial sector as well as the retail. He told me that he was confident that I would fulfill the role, and for the three years under his guidance and mentorship, I grew into a totally different indivdual following his lead. This served me for the rest of my career as I worked in different countries, thank you! I am what I am today because of your early influence- Desmond"

"Describing 'Lofton' as a friend leaves me at loss for adaquate words. As a colleague, he was a hard worker, thorough individual and indeed a true leader. In our personal relationship we always had a special connect. What will always be foremost was his extremely witty intellect and good humour. He will always be missed. May God comfort his family in their grief and loss at this time."

We laughed a lot when we spoke. I was very happy that I was able to speak with you in January. You were in a lot of pain. However, you are now in a better place and out of all pain and suffering. Rest In Peace,"

This tribute was added by Winston Beach on 16th April 2013

I can still remember his love for the Big Drum music.We lost touch after he left SK but he was often on my mind up to a couple of weeks before he passed as i wondered where he was. A true and great friend has passed on. My condolences to the family."

May fond recollection bring you relief,

Of the joy that knowing your loved one brought...
For time and space can never divide
Or keep your loved one from your side.
When memory paints in colors true,
the happy hours that belonged to you."

"Although I had few encounters with Mr. Taylor he always made it seem as though we were old friends. On one of those few meetings he paid for a dinner party of 10. When I offered to pay for my portion or at least the tip, in true LoughtonTaylor  fashion he said " I don't do dutch dates"
Mr. Taylor may you rest in peace."

This tribute was added by Samantha Taylor on 12th April 2013

"Grandad, you will be forever missed. I learned how to play golf and was fairly good at it thanks to our weekly trips to the golf course! I am thankful that you took the time out to spend with your grandchildren and all the places you took us to experience as well. I wish I was able to spend more time with you when you were sick but I know you are in a better place now. Love you!"

This tribute was added by Marc Taylor on 12th April 2013

"Thank you for giving me your best qualities. Hard work, determination, and value of friendships. I have generated some great friendships based on your advice to me when I was 13: "you are judged by the company you keep." My place on this earth seems half disconnected with your passing. I miss you."
